1963 CHEVY CORVAIR 95 RAMPSIDE -- THE CORVAIR PICKUP TRUCK
Corvair, Chevrolet's first compact car, featured a rear-mounted, air-cooled engine like the VW Beetle. Chevy followed the German company's lead further by turning the Corvair into a van and a pickup with the 1963 Chevrolet Corvair 95 Rampside Pickup. Conversion from a sedan to a van/pickup involved moving the driver seat forward over the front wheels. Total length stayed at 180 inches, but wheelbase actually shrank from 108 to 95 inches. The commercial series was badged "Corvair 95" for its wheelbase. Three models were offered -- Corvan, Loadside, and Rampside. The Corvan was a panel van. The Loadside was a pickup with conventional double-walled box and rear tailgate, while the Rampside added a door on the right side of the bed that folded down to form a ramp. Unique to Corvair, this feature allowed heavy loads to be rolled instead of lifted into the bed, and Chevrolet sales literature never missed a chance to illustrate it. The top edge was covered with rubber to protect it when lowered to the ground or curb. The cargo bed was longer than a conventional truck's bed, but wasn't level. The rear half of the floor had to be raised to clear the engine. Corvair 95 sales never took off and pickups were never as popular as Corvans. The 1963 Rampside listed for $2,212 when new, but found only 2,046 buyers. Like the Chevy Corvair, this Corvair 95 Rampside pickup is unique and is a rarity to find one today. Thanks very much for viewing this Corvair 95 Rampside pickup truck.

1961 CORVAIR RAMPSIDE, UNIQUE COMPACT PICKUP TRUCK
1961 WAS THE 2ND YEAR FOR CORVAIR A REVOLUTIONARY REAR ENGINED COMPACT PRODUCED BY CHEVY IN RESPONSE TO CHRYLSER'S PLYMOUTH VALIENT AND FORD'S FALCON. CORVAIR BROUGHT OUT A LINE OF COMPACT TRUCKS TO ADD TO THE LINE AND A STATION WAGON CALLED THE LAKEWOOD. THERE WERE 3 TRUCK PRODUCTS: PICKUP, VAN WITH WINDOWS OR PANEL, ( WHICH CAN BE CONSIDERED THE FIRST MINI VAN ), AND THE RAMPSIDE. THE UNIQUE THING ABOUT THE RAMPSIDE WAS AS THE NAME IMPLIES, A RAMP ON THE SIDE SO CARGO COULD BE WHEELED UP THE RAMP INTO THE CARGO BAY. THE ENGINE FOR THE RAMPSIDE WAS STILL RATED AT 80BHP. TRANSMISSIONS WERE EITHER A MANUAL OR AN OPTIONAL AUTOMATIC. THE STEERING WHEEL WAS MOUNTED OVER THE FRONT WHEELS LIKE THE VOLKSWAGEN VAN. THIS EXAMPLE HERE IS RESTORED ALTHOUGH SLIGHTLY MODIFIED WITH THE STEERING WHEEL, SOME DASH GAUGES, THE WHEELS, AND THE PAINT IS NOT FACTORY. THE INTEGRITY OF THIS RARE CORVAIR STILL EXIST AND THIS A GREAT RESTORATION. Another rare vehicle brought to you by 55lincoln. THANKS VERY MUCH FOR VIEWING.

Driving my 61 CHEVY CORVAN Camper
Driving my Corvan down the drive way. This van has the original 84 HP engine with a 4 speed. The engine was rebuilt about 30 years ago and now has 10,000 on it. I want to find a 140 for her. I found this van in a garage and it had been parked there since 1982, until I found her in September of 2009.
